I used gphoto2 to find out how many clicks. But I am a computer programmer, and love working with Linux.

It did not come with the latest firmware. I will be updating that tonight.

I read a thread here somewhere that the site EOSCount.com no longer works on 5D3s that have been updated to the latest FW. I would be very interested in your experience with gPhoto2 after you update your FW. Could you please post back with your results?

Thank you, Tim!

I just updated the Firmware, and used gphoto2 again to get the shutter count. It now reads 85. (Which is about what I expect from my short testing so far).

It really is easy to do. Just download the latest Fedora live disk, and boot from CD. It will run from just about any laptop or desktop, and once you shut down, you can re-boot as normal without the CD, and everything will be as it was before. There is no danger to your current OS.

So any old SLR can be traded in? I thought only the current model like a broken 5dmk3 for a 5dmk3. Not a 20d for a 5dmk3??

yes. you may have to send it in for verification if it does not have a serial number but they'll take even film SLRs.

Thank you for your feedback, Tim. Glad to hear that it still works.

I agree that gphoto2 is very simple to run. About the only drawback that I could find was the fact that it requires a wired Ethernet connection to work. I couldn't figure out how to use it on a wireless network.

Thanks again,

Yogi

You can run it on a wireless network. You just need to configure linux wireless networking which is probably outside the scope of that small tutorial.

If you or Tim could enlighten us on how to use gphoto2 on a wireless network, it would be very much appreciated. Prolly best to add the instructions to the existing tutorial on gphoto2 here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1058019

Its only $1.50 for a shutter count at eoscount.com? I don't really care what the count is. But for a buck and a half, I might do it.

There is also a "lifetime" option for $4.95 which allows unlimited readings.

20% off the regular refurb price if you turn in a clunker.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Is it back to 20% for the MK3?

I am not aware of the 5D3 commanding a smaller discount than the other bodies. I think everything in the CLP is 20% of the regular refurb price.

Perhaps you are confusing the 20% CLP discount with the regular "sales" that Canon runs where the prices are often 15% off the regular refurb price. Note that this "sale" discount and the CLP discount don't stack, so it is either-or.

For example, during Thanksgiving, they were having a higher % discount as part of their Thanksgiving sale than the CLP 20% discount, so it didn't make sense to do the CLP discount. But right now, the regular sale (that just got over today) is only 15%, so CLP still will get you ahead.

5DMIII only gets 15% discount in the CLP.

Lower models still get a 20% discount.
